We are building a free mini-hospital for the community in Smokey Mountain (garbage dump site) and Ulingan (charcoal factory).
USD5000 is all we need to buy over an existing land and renovate it into a sickbay with clean beds, electricity fans and running water.
We will train the volunteer caregivers to take care of the sick patients. Most of the illnesses are due to burn and cut wounds that could be managed by trained volunteers.
We foresee that most of the patients would be elderly and children as they are vulnerable to the hazardous environment. A playground would be built in this compound so that sick children would have a safe place to play during the recovery period from illnesses.
Malaya Kids Ministries, an NGO who provide physical, mental and spiritual supports to the community, would fully manage the sickbay and playground.
Thank to friends supports, we are now able to feed 300 kids with rice, meat and juice on every Saturday or Sunday. We also provide the kids fun time with lots of games and music before the feeding programme. The kids would go back with free slippers, shirts and toys.
The poor children do not even have their own shirt and shorts. Often they put on oversized shirts left over by their parents. They are always dirty and hungry. One meal per day (usually instant noodles) is just not enough and nutritious for them. But poverty has forced them to work or go to school in hunger.
